The 91-lot subdivision presented significant challenges. The land is situated at the intersection of two main arterial roads with restricted access, and is known to experience significant flooding from upstream catchment. We brought together a multidisciplinary team of planners, surveyors, ecologists, and stormwater and environmental engineers to design a high quality urban development that addressed the challenges and was sympathetic to the surrounding rural environment. Our plan redirected an existing farming channel and created an internal wetland and reserve with stormwater, ecological, and recreational functions. The surrounding residential lots benefitted from the open space; creating a rural/urban interface that sits comfortably in the environment.
